A Short Goodbye and a Prize!

Hello My Friends and Welcome Visitors,

This will be my last post for awhile.  I am having a pretty complicated surgery on Tuesday, March 21st.  The doctor said it will take me eight weeks to recover.  I know that those of you who know me can't imagine me sitting still for 8 weeks, let alone 8 minutes.  I have lots of books to read and I have subscribed to the British ACORN channel on Prime so I will have lots of Agatha Christie murder mysteries to watch.

Anyway, you didn't think I would go off and leave you without something to look forward to did you?  Of course not.  So while I am recovering, let's have a giveaway!  Whooo Hoooo!

This prize is open to US and International winners.  I consider the shipping part of the prize. 

I am giving away a bag loaded with Mickey Mouse/Disney stickers, paper clips, bottle caps, buttons, bling and title.

My friend Rhonda Emery made this bag and some of the prizes. Isn't it cute?  Thank you Rhonda!

Here is the bag exploded open with all of the wonderful prizes:

You can click on the pictures to make them larger.  This is over $50.00 worth of prize.

What do you need to do to win?

1. Be a follower of this blog
2. Post this prize to the side panel of your blog or on facebook.
3. Leave me a message here telling me that you would like to win this prize.

If you do not know how to add this to your sidebar, please go to this YouTube tutorial.  I always use the 2nd choice, I do it with "Add an Image".  Add a image to google side bar. If you use wordpress you can find a video on YouTube on how to do that.

That is it!  I will draw for the prize on Monday, May 1st.  Thank you everyone.  I hope to be back soon!  If you have a small moment on Tuesday;  please say a prayer or send me a good wish.


St. Patrick's Card for my Husband

Good Morning Friends and Welcome Visitors,

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Usually on St. Patrick's day we have a little party.  My Irish husband makes the best Corned Beef & cabbage and a potato dish called Colcannon oh it is so yummy!  But sadly this year I am on a liquid protein diet to prepare for the surgery I am having on Tuesday...sigh...

Anywho, here is a card I made for my sweet husband.

He truly is my lucky charm, I feel lucky every day to have him in my life.

How do you like the sky paper?  It came out of a 6x6 paper pad that I won called "Special Delivery" I liked it so much I had to use it..  I embossed the grass with my shamrock embossing folder and another embossing folder to give it texture.

St. Pat Cards Pop Up Box Card

Hello friends and welcome visitors,

I am very very late posting today!

I made a card to send to my great niece Jocelyn.  She is the sweetest girl and she has a laugh that is so infectious!  She is one of my "art girls" she loves to do art projects with me.

This is another pop up box card (I love the jar of shamrocks) This is what it looks like closed, and here it is opened.

I used the 6x6 Doodlebug paper - Pot o' Gold.  I added a little bit of glitter to the two shamrocks not in the jar.  For the jar, I covered it with glossy accents to make it look like glass.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
